I have a Sigma 50-500 which has fungus inside. I wondered if anyone has ever cleaned this or similar lens.
I would also ask who in the UK would you us to clean it.

Thanks

Send it to Sigma UK for a check and estimate. It will just cost you £14.99 for return postage and packaging should you refuse work to be carried out after the estimate. Used them twice before, no problems on both occasions.

Anyone else, is this lens worth repairing?

Depends where thelens fungus (external link) is.
When all lenses are full of fungus, and even between glued lens elements - throw it away.
In case only the outside of the front lens has fresh fungus: Clean it away and use the lens.

I have fungus cleaned some lense, but I would avoid to clean a autofocus zoom lens deep inside.
